Ram compatible question

Q: Ram compatible question

I'm looking to put more RAM into my laptop; I wasn't sure if this should be posted here or in another place.. my apologies if I've put it in the wrong place.

I have a Gateway Laptop, model ML6720. I currently have two sticks of RAM, 512MB each, the info for them is: 512MB 2rX16 PC2-5300

I found a 1GB stick I'd like to replace the 512's with, the info is: Crucial 1GB 200-pin DDR2 SO-DIMM 667 (PC2 5300) (laptop RAM).

Before I make the purchase, I was wondering if anyone could tell me if the Crucial stick would work well with my machine? I've never replaced the RAM on my laptop before, so I'm nervous about it.

I went onto the Gateway website and tried to match the info with the new RAM as best I could; I think I got it right. I'm just looking for a little more input.

Many thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: Ram compatible question

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Ram compatible question

It will work but it is recommended to have two identical ram modules... Make sure you can return it if it causes problems.

I've decided to try my hand at building my own PC. I intend it to be a medium - high end gaming computer. I've got everything figured out (at least I hope) I'm just wanting a second opinion about my choice of motherboard and CPU. I'm pretty sure they are compatible, at least in theory, I was just wondering if anyone had any first hand experience with them, or any advice for me. Hey, if you feel like it, recommend something bigger and better. I have a pretty good budget for this (within reason of course, nothing too outrageous).

CPU : AMD Phenom X4 9950 Quad Core Processor 2.60GHz, 4MB Cache, 2000MHz (4000 MT/s) FSB, Agena, Retail, Socket AM2+, with Fan (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4016668&CatId=3496)

Motherboard : FX nForce 750a SLI Motherboard - NVIDIA 750a SLI, Socket AM2/AM2+, ATX, Audio, Video, HDMI, DVI, PCI Express 2.0, Gigabit LAN. S/PDIF, USB 2.0, eSATA, RAID (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3930721&CatId=13)

One big question I have, however, is whether a GeForce 8800GT graphics card with its super long design would fit correctly or at all in that motherboard. The 2nd PCI-E slot has to be the first one used, so I couldn't put it in the top slot. I think it would fit, but not quite sure.

Anyways, thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to have a read through this, and an extra thanks to anyone with any advice or comments.
 

A:Compatible, or not compatible, that is the question.

why can u not use the first slot? the only problem should be with the case. put the mem. in before u put the video card in.

A:Will these be compatible? (noob question)

What brand and model is the "800W PSU"? If there's nothing wrong with the PSU and it's good quality and really outputs power enough for the system and you have or get a case that has sufficient cooling, you're good to go.

i noticed that having a firewall is very important & is a necessity now a days. i'm average in computer knowledge; so i'd like to know what is the best or most compatible firewall with bit torrent client applications such as azureus? i use azureus & sometimes uTorrent.

best or most compatible - meaning which will not slow down the performance of my machine in terms of cpu & memory usage; that'll not conflict with azureus or uTorrent. and especially firewall that'll not be noisy & annoying or just doesn't keep on prompting for warning & asking permission or anything in that manner while azureus is downloading.

by the way, please kindly move this topic if it shouldn't be posted here.

A:Compatible Firewall Question

You are quite right about having a firewall and using it. I might suggest Sygate Personal Firewall, since it allows you to manage permissions by application, and is light on resources. Almost all firewalls will at the very least, prompt on the first use, but you can usually tell them to "always allow" the application access.You can find a link to the free download in this BC pinned topic:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic3616.htmlRegards,John

What are some things i should check wether a new psu will be able to work with my computer. Please note that i purchased the geforce gtx 660 so disregard the gpu on the page. I heard of people loosing power with the cx 600 so i just wanted to ask you guys. My computer:

Thank you!
 

A:Question about theCorsair CX 600 compatible?

If you purchased a gtx 660, I assume you intend to game with the system. The cx line from corsair is NOT for gaming systems. It is ok for a basic build ie running onboard/onchip video, running office, email, etc. It is just not up to the stress of gaming. Corsair does not mfg their own pw supplies. The cx line is mfg by ctw [maker of oem stuff] The "real" corsairs ie HX, TX, AX are mfg by seasonic [maker of very high end stuff.

With a cx corsair, you have the equivalent of a dell or hp pw supply.

If you are asking if it will fit, your case uses a standard atx pw supply so yes it will fit however it is NOT recommended for gaming.

Not sure why posts asking about installing an OS other than Windows 10 on this device seem to vanish but here goes my attempt for a Linux Specific question. I am unwilling to run Windows 10 because an OS that without any advance notice will uninstall your privately owned and paid for software from other companies during updates potentially costing licensing fees to acquire a replacement license or even damaging system viability if one of those packages is a required driver is unacceptable to me. Due to the aforementioned issues with Windows 10 I am looking to Linux as an alternative for this device. Are there any known Linux Distributions that will fully support the hardware?Does anyone have experience installing Linux and configuring it on this device?What Linux Distribution is most recommended for this device?What additional drivers or software are recommended on Linux to be able to use the hardware to the fullest? Thanks.

Hello, I currently have a single stick of 2GB RAM in my computer. I googled advice on what to look for to know whats compatible, and found one I like on newegg, however I am alittle lost on my user manual, and am wondering if someone can transfer this to english.

DDR2 533/667/800 SDRAM (240pin/ non-ECC) (for 73U/PV)

DDR2 533/667 SDRAM (240pin/ non-ECC) (for 73V)

2 DDR2 DIMMs (4GB max)

That is what my manual says works for my computer, the RAM I want is compatible with the first one. However it is 800 SDRAM DDR2 and I do not understand if I need to pay attention to that second row? Since it does not have a 800 compatibility, only 533 and 667.

I looked up my model number and all the manufacturer site gave me was:

DDR2 Memory DDR2 533/667/800
DDR3 Memory N/A
Memory Channel Single
DIMM Slots 2
Max Memory (GB) 4

Can anyone let me know if the newegg RAM will work?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231122
 

A:RAM compatible?

The 533, 667, and 800 are the speeds it supports, 800Mhz being the fastest supported speed. DDR2 is the type, all DDR2 is 240 pin. Non-ECC means its not Error Correcting Code - its used in servers and workstations but not home system to fix memory errors.

If you want to be sure you buy the correct RAM I wold suggest you visit the website of a memory reseller or manufacturer an use their memory selector to choose the right RAM. Example: http://www.crucial.com/

A:Compatible Ram For My PC???

Yeah, www.crucial.com should have what you need. It uses PC133, not PCI (that is a slot on your motherboard). MSI specifically says this about your ram:
Supports six memory banks using three 168-pin unbuffered DIMM.
• Support a maximum memory size of 1.5GB.
• Support ECC(1-bit Error Code Correct) function.
• Support 3.3v SDRAM DIMM.

Wouldn't it be helpful to know the motherboard, and the operating system ? That information is what is usually needed first... then the memory answer comes fairly quickly.
I would not want to try to match the existing memory module, but rather to buy new modules all of the same brand and specs... mixing memory modules too often slows things down a bit.

Apparently the motherboard supports
4x DDR3 DIMM 2000(OC) / 1333 / 1066 MHz (Max. 16GB) / Dual Channel
There's no 1800MHz stated, does this mean the RAM won't work (or will work but limited usage)

Motherboard/RAM combinations can be so cranky and finicky that I'd stick to the letter of the ASUS requirements for RAM. I'd avoid 1800. Why take the chance?

It has a very decent CPU speed at about 2.5 GHz.
I strongly believe that the PIN size needed for the cards is 184 (I looked it up).

Some questions that I need answered:
What is the maximum allowed RAM on this computer?
Is the RAM compatible?
Is this a good amount to pay for it, or is there another, cheaper, way?
Should I buy a new computer, or just stick with this one?

In advance, Thank you for your help!

A:Is this RAM compatible with my PC?

There is not enough information. We need to know which computer you have or at least which motherboard you have in the PC.

Many motherboards only support 1GB per memory slot. There is no way of knowing if your motherboard will support 2GB per slot, without first looking up the information.

Hey guys! I'm new here and I'm glad to join the community.

This is my first time building my own PC, I've been trying to get the correct parts and everything and pretty much I'm almost done. The only two things that I was missing were a mother board and a RAM. I got this Motherboard: https://wwws.nextwarehouse.com/item/?1604397
and this RAM: https://wwws.nextwarehouse.com/item/?1364512

Are they compatible?

Please let me know if they are or not so I can re-order something else.

Thank you

Hello all,

I recently bought an extra 1GB of RAM for my computer after buying a new graphics card (nvidia 8600 GT) as I wanted to be able to play more demanding games. The problem started when Warhammer Mark Of Chaos kept freezing, so I thought I'd upgrade. I got the graphics card, got the RAM installed, but the problem still occurred from time to time. I installed FreeRAM XP which frees up RAM occasionally and this helped a little, but the extra GB of RAM seems to have made no difference.

I read somewhere that although your computer recognises the extra RAM, the motherboard can't use it. Is this true, and how do I tell if my RAM is actually being used or if I've bought a useless piece of kit!?

Thanks.

I want to use CPU from a Toshiba A205 in a Toshiba A105. They're both use Intel Centrino Duo processors.

Are they compatible?
How do you know?
 

A:Is this CPU compatible? How do you tell?

You will have to try and find out the socket number for the motherboard in it. You can use a program called CPUZ I think which is free to download. I think this is the way to go at this any one back me up?

I have a line on a few sticks of ram, the part # is KTM4982/2G , and I was wondering if it is compatible with my PC? My PC model is an Acer Aspire AST671-EP820A. I am not sure if the sticks of ram are specific to a brand or model of computer, and I am hoping I am able to add 1 or 2 of these sticks to my own comp.

Hi guy's!
I'm about to buy a new PSU, but I actually don't know anything about those things. So I need your help.
I want to buy a cheap and silent PSU, with an output of 400W. I found this one (www.realpower.de/details.php, but I don't know if this fits. And if it doesn't fit, what is the reason.  
Thank you in advance!

I am computer illiterate, can run & use general programs but dont understand the technical jargon and have the following system (Belarc Advisor Info):- Intel Celeron 667MHz, 20Gb HDD, 256MB pc133 SDRAM, FDD, 52x32x52 CDRW, Windows 98SE, Broadband ADSL. My question today is: Can I upgrade to Windows XP Home Edn? Can I put in a DVD Burner? Can I put in an AV Capture Card? I would like to transfer Analog Video Camera Tapes to DVD including editing etc. Could someone please advise what extra memory, hard drive space, processor speed i would need? Thanks.
 

A:Compatible?

Can you upgrade to XP Home?
yes, it will most likely run but will seem pretty slow considering the cpu / amount of ram you have.

Can you install a DVD burner ?
Absolutely, should run just fine with what you have.

Can I put in an AV Capture Card?
Most likely yes, but considering the amount of cpu speed/ram you have, I don't think it will function very well. ( I am not up on video capturing etc..)
any converting of video to DVD require lots of cpu / memory ( the more, the merrier)

I can offer many suggestions of what you should get, but I have no idea what budget you're on.

2.5 Ghz or faster
1 gig memory
80 gig + ( the bigger the better )

good luck
Swiper

Hiya, i've asked many questions here but i forgot to ask one question which is regarding my old motherboard, I'm giving my Old motherboard to my sister. and she would like to upgrade the graphics card on it. So i ask you today to see if the motherboard is compatible with the graphics card i will purchase. Thanks in advance.

motherboard: ASUS P5LP-LE
Graphics card: MSI GTX 460 Cyclone OC Edition 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI Mini HDMI Out PCI-E Graphics Card.

A:Compatible?

That GPU may be a little to much for that board. Also requires 200 watts of extra power. You be better of with some a little less.
